...that my bed time is the time to start raving and partying in there! Don't get me wrong I love feeling baby move, but I'd like to sleep now please! Anyone else struggle to sleep when baby is very active?

All of mine did this! I think it's normal for them to wake up when you lie down. Apparently the movement of you walking around soothes them to sleep, and when you stop they wake up for play time

Alittleshort just the same as after they're born then Grin

How far along are you OP? I want to say you'll hopefully get used to it but that's not helpful if you're 38 weeks!

I'm 25w I guess time to get used to it! πŸ˜‚

It hadn't even occured to me about the movement of me doing stuff and walking around during the day etc πŸ™ˆ I usually sleep still as a stone so that's make sense!

Yes, I have this. She also likes to wriggle in the wee hours of the morning... I normally sleep through it, but if I'm awake & she's particularly wiggly then it can take me a while to get back to sleep.

Yep bump has decided bedtime is the perfect time to practice her impression of a washing machine lol

Mine was definitely doing a washing machine impression last night! πŸ˜‚
Glad I'm not the only one!

This is really normal, you walking around sends them to sleep so any time your laying down or sat down that's when they tend to have their party Smile x
